Originally established in 1983 the Birdtail Country Museum now consists of two building situated side by side on Main Street in Birtle, Manitoba. The main building, a former Union Bank, is arranged as a bank manager’s residence from the 1900’s.

The museum houses approximately 5000 artifacts of every kind which are well displayed throughout both buildings. Included is a huge variety of house hold items as well as military, archaeological and aboriginal artifacts.

The museum is considered to be a major tourist attraction. A small but dedicated group of volunteers strive to keep the museum open and accessible to the general public as much as possible. Usually a summer student is hired to assist with tours.
